I just want to say again how happy I will be once I no longer have to spell February on a regular basis……come on March!
Anyways…..Ispy is a beauty subscription that comes in a bubble mailer. It is $10USD per month and includes deluxe samples and full sized products. All of your products come in a reusable makeup bag. This months theme is Ipsy Love. All Ipsy bags are selected for the individual person so there is a wide variety of products possible to receive. There are plenty of spoilers with this one and you can see exactly what you will be getting a few days before your bag arrives by logging in to your account.
I think this months bag is super cute and I would even use it for more then just makeup. As usual the card included simply tells you the theme and features one or more of their stylists. All of your product info is found online.
City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini-$4.99 Full Size
I am not really liking this new trend of lip products that can’t decide what they are. This is another one of those that comes in a lip gloss tube, with a lip gloss applicator, but it is more of a thin lipstick instead. That being said the color and lip feel is quite nice. It has full coverage and no shine and surprisingly the colour is not neon.
Emite Make Up Professional Eye Lash Curler-$25.00
Ugghhh……I hate eye lash curlers……they are the most useless and time wasting device ever. There is no way in hell that I would ever pay $25.00 for one either. This will get tossed into a drawer and promptly forgotten about until someone either asks me for one or maybe the girls can play with it when they are older. Boooo!!
Eva NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray-30mL $3.00
I have a lot if hair but it is super fine so I am always looking for ways to poof it up when I don’t want it pulled back out of the way. This is a rice derived spray to help with extra texture and lift. I want to hope this will work but you really need to use a blow-dryer to get the most out of these and I honestly can’t be bothered. Flat hair it is then.
Mitchell And Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil-10mL $27.62
As you can see I didn’t remove this from the little baggie they shipped it in. It has leaked and there is oil all over this bag. Luckily because Ipsy did take the time to put it into a baggie, the mess is contained. I contacted them and they are shipping my out a new one and if anything else had been damaged they would have sent me that as well. After all that I am actually interested in trying this. I had received a face oil in a different box and while I was originally leery of putting oil onto my face I was surprised at how quickly it absorbed and that it didn’t return me to my teenage greasy years. This sample is a half size to the regular one so it’s a good sized sample as well and the price reflects that. Also you need so little with a face oil that it will last a long time.
ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Cosmopolitan-3.6g $11.00
I don’t think this is a full sized blush so I’ve priced it as half sized. I am going to have to stop complaining about not getting blush in my boxes as lately they have been coming through. While this looks like an 80’s pink it goes on really sheer and leaves a subtle flush to your cheeks.
This month bag has a value of $71.61!!!! That’s insane for what you pay for it. While I hate the curler, everything else is good and I love the blush. You also get to review your items each month for points you can trade for other products. I do have enough for a couple of the items now but am going to hold out and see if something I just need to have comes up.
